An eight-hour siege has ended with police finding a man’s body inside a home north of Brisbane.
Officers had been outside the property on Osbourne Terrace at Deception Bay since just after 11am after reports of a disturbance and had been negotiating with a 53-year-old man.
They entered the home at around 7.15pm and found a body of a man.
The discovery brought the siege to an end with police lifting emergency status in the area.
Negotiators had been speaking with a man throughout the day believed to be armed inside the house.
The death will be investigated by the ethical standards command and a report will be prepared for the coroner, Queensland police media said in a statement.
The Crime and Corruption Commission has also been informed.
The Deception Bay stand-off began just an hour after another man surrendered to police at Inala in Brisbane’s south in an unrelated siege.
Negotiators had worked since around lunchtime on Saturday to get a man allegedly armed with a machete and a hand gun to give himself up.
He eventually surrendered without incident and was taken to hospital for assessment.
No charges were laid.
